Benefit Boil Pictures

The Celebration in honor of Matthew and Ivanna was a wonderful time of fellowshipping with friends and family and sharing our burden to adopt. We all were able to have a delicious low country seafood boil in a stunning location. (thanks to family: Kris and Donna McGaughey) We also had many friends donate time, talent and money to help us in this endeavor that was widely blessed of God. At the end of the evening it was figured to have brought in nearly $8,000.00!!!!!
We had a wonderful time, and think that everyone who attended (104 adults alone!) had a great time as well.
Again ~ thank you to all those who helped in this very special event! It was a huge blessing and we will NEVER forget this day!
The following are some pictures of the day. Thank you to Garth Henson for taking these and helping us to capture sweet memories.

Mrs. Browning I wish we had gone to help out because I love helping people. If you have any more "hair pretties" I would like to buy a few to help you out and I adore hair accesories. ;)

With love Kaitlyn Pickens

This was a wonderful time. Kristin playing was my fave part. I kept thinking this could be Ivanna one day and what a proud and awesome day that would be! She melted my heart. Thanks for allowing us to be part of it all.
